Although there were some technical difficulties with the actual presentation, including mics that were left on stage in direct line with the screen, this film is poignant and intense. I have never seen a slice of my 'era' portrayed so closely....continued

It was about a heavy metal band. it had a lot of talking about it with small bits of what they did. It was very repetitious.

The Gits

directed by Kerri O’Kane (USA, 2007, 70 min, Documentary)

_ The Gits_ chronicles the tragic story of one of the most influential bands to emerge from the Seattle music underground. With an innovative sound that coupled hardcore punk with heartfelt blues, the Gits were poised to break into mainstream, but they could never achieve the success of contemporaries Nirvana or Pearl Jam, because on July 7, 1993 singer Mia Zapata was found murdered – apparent victim of rape/homicide.

It was a crime unsolved when director Kerri O’Kane began shooting her debut feature. In the interim, however, fans, friends and celebrities like Joan Jett and Nirvana helped raise money to reopen what had become a cold case file. Mia’s death had reverberated throughout the music community, and unprecedentedly Mia’s killer was brought to justice as the cameras rolled.
